Directions:
From Southbay area:

Hwy 280

I suggest taking 280, as the traffic on 101 and crossing El Camino on Ralston can be extremely heavy. (weekdays)
280 North to 92 East
First exit, Ralston, turn right.
Right on Lyall way (Near the bottom of the hill)
Left on Lake Rd.
Right on Carlmont Dr. Follow to the end and park in the Cul de Sac or parking area.

Hwy 101

101 freeway north, exit onto Ralston Avenue Exit 412.
Turn left onto Ralston Avenue.
Turn left onto Alameda De Las Pulgas.
Turn right onto Carlmont Dr, at the "stop" sign turn left to stay on Carlmont, follow Carlmont to the end and park.
The trail head starts here.
Travel time from Santa Clara is about 30-40 minutes.


Rain 2-3 days before the ride will cancel this event, as the park tends to dry out slowly.

Will post a weather update by 9 AM

    Like you mentioned DJ. Mistakes are critical. Had a awesome time and The falls just made the adrenaline pump faster. Just praying I washed away all the poison oak

    Hey DJ, I probably will cross paths with the group on the trail. Don't want to RSVP since I am adding the Waterdog loop to my Saturday ride from my house and I don't know exactly I will be on the trailhead. Cheers!

    As a reminder, RSVPing Yes to this ride and not showing will get you bumped to the wait list of future rides you sign up for. Please be considerate and only RSVP Yes if you're positive you're coming to ride.
